We did some reconfiguration on our SP-Cluster concerning SSA-Loops.
Node 1 and Node 3 shared 2 loops (loop A=disc 1-8 and loop B=disc 9-16) on
Node 5 had exclusiv access to discbay 2 (loop A=disc 1-8 and loop B=disc
Bay1: 2x4GB and 12x9GB
Bay2: 2x4GB and 13x9GB
Node 1, 3 and 5 have all mutual access to both Discbays (loop A=disc 1-16 of
bay1 and loop B=disc 1-16 of bay2)
Bay1: 2x4GB and 13x9GB
Bay2: 2x4GB and 12x9GB
One 9GB-disc was taken from bay2 and inserted in bay1 at the beginning of
The problem is that before the start of all this I had configured three
raid-5 arrays on node1 which got the state offline after the action. Any
attempt to delete one of the raids resulted in the messaged 'Object
xxxxxxxxx(Raid-Identifier) is broken'. Anyhow the discs which make up the
array are all there and marked as good.
I'm also not able to define a new raid although there are enough disks of
state free in both loops.
When i enter the dialog to add the new raid and i activate the select list
for the members then both lists (loop A, loop B) are empty.
Fortunatly I have no important data on the raid but I need to revitalise the
Anybody any advice for me ?????
